towing cap on 2002 tj 4.0?

i have a 2002 tj with 35 x-terrain and 6 inchs of total lift. i was wondering the towing cap on vehicle.ive read somewhere that my car is rated for 2000 pounds, but i have a boat that ways a little more. so does anyone tow any thing big with there jeep, like a boat.

Towed a 16 foot trailer with mine for a dump run. Had no problem at all towing it loaded just had a problem it being a windy day and the trailer was like a sail. I just stayed on the back roads. Not really sure of the actualy towing capacity but the trailer loaded weighed in at about 3500 and the jeep didnt even struggle.

yeah 2000 is right i think but unless you have regeared it with those 35 that 4.0 will struggle with towing almost anything.
